About me

Bri Gonzalez (she/they) is a queer, Chicana/e poet born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. Writing has whisked them off to the University of Colorado Boulder, where they're pursuing their MFA and teaching creative writing. Her work focuses on monsters -- cryptids, boogeymen, zombies, etc. -- as well as mental disorders and their perception in media.She's horrible at talking about herself, like most writers, but here's an assortment of bits and baubles that sum up who Bri is: they're addicted to caffeine, love admiring the moon, play tabletop roleplay games, watch Food Network shows, and binge horror movies. Her friends mean the world to her, even when they roast Bri to their core. She has a void cat named Dahlia, who is her favorite demon. If they could give the universe to anyone, it would be their sibling.
